Shop Online ?

I’ll sometimes buy things online, not very often, and not at ebay kind of sites! :slight_smile:

for example: I just ordered my cdfreaks t-shirt and cap :slight_smile:

I only buy online from stores i can trust (or at least have the feeling i can trust them) So far it goes pretty good.

The only thing i was dissapointed at was when i ordered some T-shirts and stuff from www.thinkgeek.com , the local customs decided to add additional taxes to it , which made the whole purchase quite expensive.

Luckily this hasn’t been the case with my Amazon dvd’s yet :slight_smile:

Buying online suggests that the retailers know what they’re doing. Sadly www.gamedud.com.au has no clue. Ordered and direct deposited (popular in Oz) last Thursday, got an email today saying I had 3 days to complete the order which I did on Thursday. 5 emails ignored, telephone is out of order and has been for weeks, doh! I’m obviously an idiot, but I really need that ASUS48x. My advice, steer clear of Gamedude.com.au.

I make most purchases online. Even my $300 DVD player was online from http://www.sears.ca/.

Another over looked area is: auctions. Online Auctions. But know your prices. Sit back and watch for a week or two. Otherwise, you’ll be taken advantage of.

I’ve got some difficulties with www.madman.com.au (Australian Anime/Manga movies website). I’ve ordered a couple of dvd’s about 3 months ago and still haven’t heard if they are accepting the order and if they are going to send it and charge my credit card.

Now i most also tell i haven’t been actively mailing them as well about it since i constantly keep forgetting it :slight_smile:

I for once never have bought anything online :o
I’m still kind of afraid i suppose that i might end up losing money or getting robbed someway.

I got my credit card a few months back and was willing to use it, but lots of friends that had tried online shopping suggested i shouldn’t. One of them bought a plane ticket for England online, and 1 month later he got a bill from an English music cd store claiming he bought 120$ worth of cds online … scary isn’t it?

Unless they explicitly state “O/S orders OK” or the like, then they probably don’t. They don’t popularly ship O/S. I did an online order for 100 x 99’ discs to the states…haven’t heard or seen a damn thing yet for 6 months
